In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

So I swapped from Oddbox to Riverford over the last month. Whilst I did like idea of rescuing surplus and wonky veg – most of the time I found it hard to make up dishes that at least the other adult in our family would eat. But more often than not, a chunk of the box’s contents had to go …

This is a classic recipe which I wanted to like all my life, even when I used to eat meat. I never really did though and later it became clear: it’s the meatballs.

Super Simple Vegan Brownies Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love brownies and oddly this has been a recipe I haven’t “veganised” yet. So when my daughter requested brownies the other day, I thought this is the perfect time to do so!
